Is that the kit for the Diploma Program? If so do you know what comes in the tool kit for the certificate program? Thank you!

Bean Sprout's Cafe said...

rocafellarecords1985 : the tool kit is for only 9 months in the kitchen. I am not sure what do u mean by Diploma or cert since LCB they use their own word...

Anyway, it means the tool kit is just for Cert 3 cuz when we are doing Cert 4 or Diplma, we don't go to the kitchen anymore

henry said...

can i ask something?? im going to lcb soon, id like to ask if i can take a grand diplome course, means that can we take the cuisine and patisserie at the same time (at 9 months) or we should take 18 months (cuisine and patisserie separately)??

Bean Sprout's Cafe said...

henry : you can take both in the same time... but its gonna be a bit taugh... like 6 days a week.. (some people do that) .. I think you should do in separately unless you don't wanna waste so much time..(of course about cost of living here too). Let me know if you come :)

henry said...

also id like to ask is it necessary to take the cert IV and the diplome de cuisine program?? and if we take the Grand Diplome do we get some discount on the school fee?? coz they give discount in Paris and London, thx btw for the information senior

Do you get to keep the kit after you graduate?

Bean Sprout's Cafe said...

henry : mm...I have no idea about discount..

Anonymous : of course you can. Cuz you pay for it..$2000 for Tool kit and Uniform

Bean Sprout's Cafe said...

Anonymous : Our pants pattern here is checkered. But I heard that it is different from the one in London.. not so sure.. But they will provide you 2 pants, why wanna buy it? Anyway, I am not so sure, please check with school again :)

Lisa said...

Hey there!! I'm about to start LCB in Dallas, TX. HOWDY Y'ALL!! To say I'm excited would not begin to cover the range of emotions I'm feeling at the moment. The first step to my new career and following my passion for food will finally be met. Orientation was this morning and I'm jazzed about my first chef's uniform!

yono said...

do you go to the kitchen when studying cert 4 and diploma? or is it just theory about management??

Bean Sprout's Cafe said...

yono : for my class, only theory and management..no practical.. but I heard from friend that the new cirriculum also have practical in cert4 also.. not sure about it.. you'd better make sure with school :)

Heiii.. This monday gonna be my first day at LCB Sydney.. I'm so excited..
But I still wondering cz they said we should use uniform when we come even in the first day..
Which uniform they talked abt?
Cz I took the toolkit and the uniform from Johnson Pty already, its just kind of chef uniform.. They don't mean that chef uniform rite?
Cz I haven't get my any other uniform as its just gonna be my first day out there..

Thanks for the info..
Cheerz.. :)

Bean Sprout's Cafe said...

Anonymous : There is only Chef uniform for us.. so they definitely mean chef uniform.. cuz even first day, we will go into the kitchen, so u suppose to wear chef uniform, don't u?

There will be the changing room for you to change from your normal outfit to chef uniform.. dont forget to bring the key + lock for the locker too..

hope u like it :D

mariecha said...

Bean Sprout's Cafe said...

Mariecha : yes we do, even not all we use but we need to buy the kits :)

I'm extremely interested in studying in LCB. My course, however, is IHM (International Hotel Management). I'm aware that LCB is superb in Culinary, but I'm really curious as to how good their IHM course is. From what you've seen and heard, what do you think?

Thank you kindly in advance. Appreciate it. Amazing kit by the way! Glad to know LCB has been a pleasure for you.

hey! i am SOOO glad i stumbled upon your blog!! i am from Pakistan and am starting the certificate 3 in patisserie at LCB sydney from july 2014.. and i have no idea what to expect! coming across your blog is like a blessing - i went through your time at LCB, in detail, and it seems like you had a wonderful time! i cant stop reading about your experiences at sydney! and now im so looking forward to start my course!!

i was curious concerning the job opportunities, once you have completed the certificate.. is it easy to get in the market as a pastry chef? or is it difficult to get a job for international students?

Also, the industry placement, which is a part of certificate 3, do we get paid during that training period?
